Product Description

The Nallo 2 Gt is a lightweight 2 person, 4 season tent with a spacious vestibule. This tent is designed to be the lightest weight possible while still being able to handle all but the absolute worst winter conditions.

Features

-Excellent space to weight ratio

-unmatched versatility

-Packed weight: 5 Lbs. 12 oz.

While Nallo and Nallo GT’s salient characteristic is their ultra light weight, both are still fully able to handle all season, all weather adventures.

§ The Tunnel design, with its single-opening, continuous pole sleeve construction and linked inner and outer tents makes the Nallo and Nallo GT easy and simple to set up.

§ Ultralight materials – Kerlon 1200 outer tent fabric and 9 mm poles – make for a supremely stable yet very lightweight tent.

§ Pitching requires only four pegs, yet additional peg and guy line points – 11 on the Nallo and 16 on the Nallo GT – provide a myriad of options for increasing stability. Remarkably strong Spectra guy lines are attached at two points to all poles sleeves on both sides of the tent, and have two line runners each to ensure optimal tension. The front vent also has a guy line with a line runner.

§ Both maximize interior space by having full sitting height closest to the front, where you need it most, as well as one vertical inner tent entrance, and, because of the tunnel design itself, near-vertical side walls.

§ A single entrance and vestibule afford easy access and plenty of storage space, and this, along with our lighter weight Kerlon 1200 outer tent fabric and 9 mm poles produce an astonishingly light yet all-weather-strong tent.

§ The GT’s extended vestibule boasts one entrance on each sides, so that you can always situate one out of the weather.

§ The entire front of the Nallo GT’s vestibule can be rolled away to create a tunnel-shaped opening which has full tent width and enough depth to keep all but the worst weather away from the inner tent door.

§ The Nallo and Nallo GT’s ventilation works regardless of weather conditions, since the inner tent fabric is highly breathable yet water repellent, and since the large front vent is not only situated high enough to keep air moving even if the tent is dug down into deep snow, but it is also backed by an adjustable snow-proof panel that is accessible from inside the vestibule. Inner tent venting comes from the adjustable fabric-backed no-see-um mesh panel in the rear wall of the inner tent. In addition, the inner tent door has a full no-see-um mesh panel covered with an equal sized, zipper-adjustable fabric panel, and the rear wall of the outer tent can be partially rolled up and guyed out for more venting options.

I love this tent.

The design is very well thought out.

There are too many functions for me to list, the versatility of this tent blows my mind.

I have used it in as low as 0 degrees (F)and it keeps the temperature up fairly well.

If the inner tent is unvented, there is a very small amount of condensation on the inner roof of the tent but I do not think there is a tent out there that will not do this if unvented. As long as the outer tent is well vented, the condensation is almost zero. (there are vents in both the front and back of both walls)

I love the vestibule, and it protects both peoples gear and then some, it is also a good place to have neighbors over while waiting out a storm!

The tent is easy to setup

This tent must be staked with a minimum of four pegs to stand.

J.J.Great, but....

My wife and i just bought one of these and, were super stoked. It probably goes without saying that Hilleberg is the $hit. Superior design and quality fabrics. The only downfall is that I at 5'11" am to tall for this tent. When in my sleeping bag the hood of it is compressed and, my toes are slightly into the fabric. Just an observation and some personal experience. This tent is still top notch just something to be aware of.
